Rusty's Forecast - Quiet start to the weekend but more snow on the way.

By  | 

Skies will remain clear tonight as we see temps slowly fall into the upper single digits after midnight and stay there into Saturday morning. Southeast winds will pick up a bit by Saturday morning too.

Saturday starts chilly and sunny but clouds are forecast to slowly increase during the afternoon. Southeast winds gusting to 30 mph will try to warm us but we'll likely only make to near 30 degrees. Those clouds will lead to our next snow chance that gets going after midnight Saturday night.

Snow is likely in the early morning hours Sunday and will continue through noon at the latest. The majority of it will likely end on the Nebraska side of the river by 9am though. A little freezing drizzle could mix in at times adding to roads that will already be a bit dicey. 1-3" of accumulation is expected in the metro area. Odds are likely that metro stays on the lower end of that and the higher totals end up in Western Iowa. Light snow is likely farther west. The rest of the day Sunday will be cloudy and chilly.

Another system will bring snow to the area starting Monday afternoon lasting into early Tuesday morning. This has the potential to add up to more than Sunday's snow and bring some stronger wind behind it Tuesday. Stay tuned for the latest on these systems as they move through.
